Polish defense minister visits Afghanistan
by UPI

WARSAW, Poland - Poland's defense minister traveled to Kabul Wednesday to see how steering wheels of his military vehicles were lost while being flown to Afghanistan.

Defense Minister Aleksander Szczyglo visited the southern town of Kandahar to meet Polish troops stationed in Afganistan as part of the NATO forces, Polish Radio reported Wednesday.

Szczyglo is investigating losses during air transport of military equipment that was shipped from Poland to Afghanistan via Pakistan.

Polish Hummer vehicles reached their Afghan destinations without steering wheels, first-aid kits and ignition keys.

About 1,300 Polish soldiers are completing combat drills to get ready to patrol southern Afghanistan by early June when they will confront Taliban rebels.

Rebels are expected to increase their activities in the coming summer months when they should get more money from the undergoing opium poppy harvest, the radio said.
